Three Northland filmmakers will be featured in the Midwest Fly Fishing Film Showcase set for Sunday at Clyde Iron Works in Duluth.

Filmmaker David Cowardin of Duluth presents two films: “Above Barriers: Brook Trout Off the Beaten Path’’ and “Game Changer: A Watershed Moment.”

"Above Barriers" highlights remote wilderness brook trout fishing along the North Shore via pack rafts. "Game Changer" profiles Duluth angler Alyssa Nelson, a Hartley Nature Center educator and fly angler.

Filmmaker Brent Notbohm of Duluth presents “Autumn Days,” a film about the Bois Brule River featuring steelhead and brown trout.

Filmmaker Luke Kavajecz of Bayfield presents two films: “Two Shallow Seasons” and “North Coast.” In "Two Shallow Seasons," Kavajecz, also a fishing guide, showcases the diverse Chequamegon Bay fishery, highlighting massive bass, brown trout and more. "North Coast" is a stunning visual piece on rugged steelhead fishing on the North Shore.

In all, more than a dozen short films will be featured. The film festival serves as a fundraiser for the local Gitche Gumee Chapter of Trout Unlimited to help pay for conservation projects in the region, namely on trout streams.

Tickets are $13 in advance and $15 at the door. There will be prizes from Simms, Scientific Anglers, Hatch, the Superior Fly Angler, the Great Lakes Fly Shop and other donors.
